Landscape Conservation in Spring

Positive actions in the spring are important for your landscape’s continued health.

Having your lawn cut higher will produce more food energy which can be stored in an expanding root system; important for fighting disease and for better sustaining turf all season.

Tent caterpillars eat and strip newly emerging leaves. This weakens the trees which then must expend more stored energy to replenish lost leaves.

Scale insects attack just about every plant in your landscape and can only be controlled with an oil or soap spray. The sooner they are controlled in the spring, the better off your plants will be all season. Scales do a number on ornamental fruit trees, as well as azaleas, taxus, pine, hemlocks, etc, etc.

Consistent, corrective pruning maintains a pleasing appearance while promoting health and strong internal structure to withstand wind damage.
